To borrow from my Large Mean Friend the Hulk, you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. You see Young Justice is just another show in the long list of shows Cartoon Network has given the Axe to. The difference is this show was Fantastic! There were a TON of sub plots going on that dealt with some pretty Adult and Dark stuff. Not to mention the animation was some of the best I have seen in Western Animation in years. The storytelling was more like Anime in it dealt with complex issues and situations not to mention emotions like guilt, anger, and betrayal. Although moving the show from different times constantly I am sure Lost a lot of people. If it wasn’t for DVR I would have missed countless episodes. I am 27 years old, which means I grew up in the 90’s. I got to watch the Golden Age of Super Hero shows. The Amazing Spiderman, X-men and then onto Justice League and even Teen Titans. I remember when Toonami came out, I would rush home from school to do my Homework and then watch all the shows that came on. All my friends would gather and we would watch them until the block was over. I look around now and see the cartoons on Cartoon Network and they just suck I mean they really do. Then Adult Swim came on and on Saturdays you could watch the Anime that CN aired. That’s how I watched Rurouni Kenshim, Full Metal Alchemist, Bleach and many others. But Saturday night is the WORST time to show Anime, most of the young adults who would watch it are out partying and having fun. Of course the internet has made watching things A LOT easier but the airing times have got to change. There is just no way those times are going to be pulling in viewers these days. What I’m saying is its time to Adapt and commit to these shows, stop changing the times stop canceling them and give them time to build an audience. I’m assuming Thundercats got canned because its not on anymore either. Another one of my growing up favorites and I even liked the new one. Shows like the New Avatar which was a Huge success proves it can be done. Granted the old one was amazing too but this one has animation that is up to par of a lot of Anime. Come on CN you can do better than this, become the Animation Giant you used to be.
